Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definately the best restaurant on the Island Flores. Not only the food is great but the location with the view from the garden over the ocean is breath taking! Here you can see beatiful sun sets. We had diner twice and all was delicious. The...limpets, grilled fish, lamb, sea weed pie, beef, peanut ice cream, everything was delicious, home made, I guess the veggies from the garden of the owners. The owners are very kind and work hard and create a very relaxed admosphere as well. We even got a welcome wine and honey liquor since we stayed in their traditional holliday house for about a week. Can highly reccoment this restaurant. It's best to make a reservation since the place is not too big but if fully booked for lunch or diner, just go there for a drink and enjoy the beautiful view in the garden!More

This little place is a treat. Often booked out at night, but quietish when we passed through for lunch. Cuisine is traditional Azorean with some nice little touches. Veg soup to start with but there was a tempting sounding seafood pancake (15 euros). The place...is not cheap but the food was excellent. Junior had the vegan choice which was called seaweed cake but was actually a kind of skewer of balls of seaweed cooked with egg a sort of spongy flavour of the sea without eating an actual fish, which was left to the rest of us. This was served with yam, sweet potato and ordinary potato. Odd but nice. Fried fillets of Trigger Fish for Junior 2 and two portions of Boca Negra, fried, although it said grilled on the menu, with potatoes and mixed salad. This is a fish that never disappoints, fluffy white flesh, gentle flavour and firm enough to take a good frying until the skin is crispy. Delicious. The lemon mousse was creamy and divine, while junior tucked into a kind of dessert of the house, featuring chocolate, cream and cake. All washed down with a bottle of vinho verde and coming to the princley sum of 110 euros including coffees. Highly recommend. Village of Fajazinha is a gem, restaurant is a very steep walk towards the sea.More

Delicious and welcoming experience at this restaurant. Everything was delicious and you have to order the seaweed pie! We ordered nearly the entire menu. The owner was so kind and friendly, he also owns a few airbnbs nearby that look lovely. Pop out with a...drink to catch the epic sunset. A perfect dinner spot. Bring cash! No credit cards. Make a reservation in advance as there are limited tables.More

During my stay in Flores I have visited this restaurant twice. I was lucky at first to get a place without a reservation, but it is safer to reserve upfront as the restaurant is often full. Situated in an amazing location, this traditional restaurant serves...great food and wine. We have had fish both times, and it was very simple and tasty, served with typical cooked vegetables. The portions were generous, but there was still place for dessert; bolo de pudim (pudding cake) was very good both times. The waiter was friendly and welcoming. After our second dinner, we experienced an amazing sunset, discovering the reason why the restaurant is named Por do Sol (meaning sunset in portuguese). Overall, our visit was a very pleasant experience both times, and we would highly recommend it. P.s.: Make sure you bring cash or national debit card as the restaurant does not accept international debit cards.More

It was hars to find because both google maps and Apple Maps had marked the place on wrong places. But with TripAdvisor we finally found it. We had lamb and it was perfect, very delicious. We recommend this place.

Actually located in Fajazinha, not Lajes. We went for lunch and dinner, both were authentic and delicious. The owner personally greeted us both times and had a wealth of knowledge when we peppered him with questions about the food. A good wine selection also.

É o que se chama uma verdadeira experiência típica! A comida é caseira, o ambiente familiar, a ementa tradicional, e a decoração evocativa de uma pequena casa típica de outros tempo! A isto temos que somar necessariamente a simpatia e o fantástico pôr do sol...que lhe dá o nome. Certamente voltarei. This is what you call a truly traditional experience! The food is really homemade, a familial environment, traditional menu and a decor evocative of a traditional small home from another time! To this we meet to add-up the niceness of the staff and owner and the fantastic sunset that names the place. I will certainly be back.More

Good lunch options for a group of vegetarians, which is a rare find in the Azores, and a friendly who was super friendly and welcoming. The peanut ice cream was so good we came back the next day just for that, and looked so distraught...when we finished it that the owner gave us some extra at no cost :)More

A delightful traditional azorean restaurant with a wonderful spot by the sea. Limited opening hours so check before you set off that it is open. The menu is fresh and cooked to order. My partner had a lovely fillet of fish and I opted for...the traditional Marcelo with sweet potatoes. Well priced Azorean wines accompanied our meal. Highly recommend.More

Our first meal in Azores! And what a great meal! For starters we had “fatias douradas de milho” with jam and cheese, marvellous! The mean meal was “espetadas de camarão” and “vitela assada”, so so soooooo good. The desert was “mousse de maracujá” also fantastic....It is surely a place to visit again and to not miss in a trip to Ilha das Flores.More

We had such a great meal and the sunset is fabulous. Book a table is mandatory during August and this was ghe last and best place we had a meal in Flores island. It’s a typical restaurant with typical food, no pretentious to be more...than just real good homemade food. we chose several dishes, from starters to main courses so we could try a little of everything and the food was very well prepared. Tasted as if we cooked at home. The location it’s awesome with the right sunset 🌅 a d the service was really good.More
